You may not have iron deficiency anemia. A low hemoglobin, by itself, does not indicate this condition. You may have other forms of anemia such as B12/folate deficiencies which do not benefit from the addition of iron. In fact, excess iron is detrimental to metabolic function. If your physician has not already diagnosed the particular form of anemia, please ask to have the appropriate ferritin tests done. These can then be compared with your MCV values to determine the most appropriate form of treatment.
